said that thing about his fema director, way to go, brownie, or whatever he said. that sticks in people's minds to this day. >> right. that would be a defining sound bite of his entire presidency. granted, it's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to help the bottom line come election day. >> of course, he hasn't been -- president obama wanted to fit in one last campaign paerps in florida, then hurriedly flew back because he realized he couldn't make it back to washington because the storm was coming. so he hasn't acted perfectly along this path, right?
companies will be embedding a representative with fema in order to better coordinate the response. soledad? >> power outages a big problem here. dan lothian, thanks. john berman's got a look at some of the other stories making news today. >>> police in virginia are looking for the source of three homemade bombs. investigators want to know who set off explosives outside two stafford county homes early tuesday morning. the two incidents have been linked to a third explosion tuesday inside a house in fredricksburg. no injuries were reported. >>> a guilty plea in arizona from a mexican man accused in the 2010 murder of u.s. border patrol agent brian perry. manuel osorio air ranous could be facing life in prison. the 36-year-old man said he got into a gun battle while he and four other armed men were looking for drug traffickers to rob. >>> another california surfer attacked by a shark. the 25-year-old is fighting for his life after he was bitten in his chest and abdomen yesterday. a depp puttpy in eureka saying one of the wounds is a 14 inch gash. other surfers helped pull him out of the water
about defunding fema, getting rid of fema. >> that is particularly a fascinating e.e. you are referring to his comment during one of the republican primary debates when he was asked directly, what would you do about fema? as part of your efforts to shrink the federal government, would you send fema's responsibilities back to the states? his immediate answer was, absolutely. he said, not only would that be a good idea, but possibly you would even turn it over to the private sector. raising ee prospect, what i called in the article, sort of pay as you go rooftop rescue program. where if you had the money, you could be rescued from your flooded house. if you did not, well, too bad. which i think is something that would really be abhorrent to most americans. the time when you really want and appreciates big government, as it is sometimes derided, we need to see the national guard, need to see help coming from the federal government, is when there is an all-out disaster. and the idea that you would reflexively say, shut down fema, let the free market handle this problem, to me -- well, it is
in action after superstorm sandy might flip that argument on its head. fema put 1900 people on the ground so far. it has made more than half a million meals. given out more than 600,000 liters of water and thousands of blankets and cots to anyone who needs them. will this quick reaction by the government change the mind of any voters and help president obama? joining me democratic strategist chris hahn, brad blakeman, fox news contributor, and former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. chris i have to admit, government is looking pretty good the last couple days here. i don't know. do you think it is having impact on voters out there? >> look, it is hard to argue that fema is not necessary. also hard to argue that fema performs much better under a democratic president than it did under republican president. melissa: you made a jump from that one. >> look, bottom line the republican platform this entire summer, government bad, government bad, government bad. melissa: right. >> if you look paul ryan budget, it desmates fema. we need fema to coordinate between the states. that's why w
, he will be receiving a briefing from the head of fema, craig fugate as well as his top aides, and he will remain in contact with them while he is traveling here today to wisconsin, also to nevada and colorado and that he will be doing conference call with his local officials from areas where the storm has hit. as you know, air force one is equipped so that he can stay in constant contact while he travels, carol. >> what do you think his tone will be out on the campaign trail today? >> reporter: i think we've seen a little bit of a break, obviously, from a lot of the harsh back and forth. but we're going to start to see it ramping back up. i do know from a campaign source that when president obama comes here to the airport this morning in the 11:00 eastern hour, he will be talking about the storm at the beginning of his remarks, but he's also going to be making his case for why he should be re-elected. we'll be seeing him re-entering into the political fray and certainly we'll be seeing things heating up again going into election day. when you look at wisconsin, this is a place where,
with the fema guys all the time, they're doing everything they want. >> i think that's right. i acknowledge that on the show, bob shrum. i want to go to my friend, ed rogers. >> hey. >> that's when obama was on the beat. first he was in the white house in the oval office. then he traveled. then he walked with chris christie. okay. he was doing his job. now he's back on the campaign trail. i point i'm making, ed rogers, is this. the aftermath, you know, sandy is officially over. whatever that means. but the aftermath has been brutal. much more brutal than people thought. and it extends to almost a third of the country, ed. and somebody often takes the blame who shouldn't take the blame. obama's campaigning. who's taking care of these kids? >> sure. >> in staten island who horribly, tragically, have lost their lives? >> well, you say it's horrible, and in politics, bad gets worse. and natural disasters follow a certain political pattern. at first people want the sheriff and the sheriff has to come to town and restore order and maintain peace and rescue people. now they kind of want the nurse
hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yesterday he dodged a lot of questions about it in ohio. >> reporter: yeah, and the obama campaign and other democrats are pointing to comments romney made way back in june of 2011 at a cnn republican presidential debate. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case-by-case basis and some people say the state should take on a bigger role. how do you deal with that? >> every time you take something from the federal government you need to send it back to the states. that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questi
, the mayor and the sheriffs and the police, fema is not here yet, they have to still put their stuff out there, this say local people helping local people. >> so, anderson, we'll keep an eye on this, seaside heights, new jersey, and toms river, new jersey, which i know michael holmes is there. he's talking to police there and they say least 100 people or so need rescuing as well. >> brooke, chad, we'll continue to check in with you. we'll talk to the mayor of asbury parks to see what kind of damage was there. we'll talk to him and see what daylight has brought. we'll be right back. you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list at's a few names longer. you see us bank on busier highways. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits,
been all over. fema has been fantastic. and responsive and working these types of situations. i have total respect for the job that fema is doing. i want to thank them very much as well as the army corps of engineers. as you all know, one of the major problems still is the water in the tunnels, the water has receded, so when you drive around, it looks like most of the water is gone, but the water filled the subway tunnels in many places, fill the brooklyn battery tunnel, and when the water fills the tunnels, that means con-edison has issues. much of con-ed's equipment was in the tunnels, so getting the water out of the tunnels probably the main -- one of the main orders of business right now. first a transportation update. as you know, the new york city buses are at full service today. thank you, mr. joe and your extraordinary team. there will be limited commuter rail service on metro north and on the long island railroad which will begin 2:00 p.m. today. okay? limited commuter rail service on metro north and limited new york city subway service subpoena meanted by a business bridge
are. you hear, don't pol itisize thi. i want to listen to candidate romney talking about fema during a presidential debate. this is the key moment we all want to here. new studio. we don't have it this morning. i will read a bit of it. when he was asked about fema, mr. romney said absolutely every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the
. >> on wednesday romney issue ad statement in which he said fema played a key role during times of disaster. as president i will ensure fema has the funding it need to fulfill its mission while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disaster. >> the rhetoric between the two candidates have been toned down that wasn't the case for their running mates. vice president biden accused the romney campaign of lying. it implies the auto bailout is sending u.s. jobs overseas. at a campaign stop paul ryan said the ad was inaccurate. up next on a thursday morning a closer look at some of the damage sandy left behind along the jersey shore. this is the "cbs morning news." do you want to go into space, george? you will have to be very brave. hi, grandma! oh hi,. my little monkey! here. thank you very much. you're welcome. everyone got on and they were off to the launching site. google, how far is earth to the moon? moon is 238,900
, questions are being raised if the federal emergency management agency or fema has enough money on hand to cover flood damage if the storm. flood damage alone is estimated in the billions of dollars and fema runs the federal flood insurance program so it picks up the tab. insurance experts say fema's flood insurance program has access to funds totaling less than $4 billion, most of that is in loans and cnn reports fema already owes $18 billion to the treasury department they say all the way back to hurricane katrina. that's a problem. >>> the pharmaceutical industry is activated an emergency website to help patients affected by sandy find nearby pharmacies that are open. the pharmacy statuses that called rx response has been activated in d.c., maryland and virginia and nine other states with widespread power outages many pharmacies have been unable to open and of course we've seen the delivery of supplies such as drug supplies being disrupted. it may not be the situation that your pharmacy hasn't even been open. they can't even get the trucks in to get your necessary medication. so this
. to reassure the suffering that fema and the other agencies are helping as fast as possible. >> my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape. get resources where they're needed as fast as possible, as hard as possible, and for the duration. >> reporter: his message to governors is calling personal and staunch romney supporter chris christie has. >> the president has been outstanding in this. the folks at fema have been slept. >> reporter: the fema director looked ahead to next tuesday offering federal assistance, generators and the like to states where polling places might still lack power. mitt romney was in ohio not to talk issues, to collect cans. romney backers brought food for new jersey. >> and i appreciate your generosity. it is part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. >> reporter: mr. romney had argued in a primary debate for disaster relief to be shifted to the states. even to nongovernment charities. would he kill fema? no answer today. >> what would you do with people a? why won't you answer any questions? >> reporter:
help from fema, the federal emergency management agency. the homeland security secretary, janet napolitano, who's in new york city, says that's only just the beginning. but many residents of staten island which was inundated by the storm's tidal surge, say they're getting virtually no help yet. and their desperation is now turning to anger. cnn's brian todd is on the island. he's joining us live. brian, tell us what's going on. >> reporter: wolf, we're in the new dorf beach section cedar grove avenue. this place is still flooded out even after the waters receded. people just barely able to kind of wade through the water, try to get to homes and assess damage. you've got a church that's flooded out here to your left, my right. and our photo journalist can pan back over this way down marine way. look down here with just the debris and people trying to gather things and bring things out and clear their homes of all the wreckage. what we know now, wolf, is that the bodies of two young boys who were washed away from their mother during the storm have been found. they were found in a
. sir, even though before the storm's full force had hit had, you had appealed to fema to send crews equipped to remove downed trees, try to help restore power lines as quickly as possible. how is fema responding? >> i visited with fema yet at the federal staging area. i will say initially i was somewhat concerned because there were some forest service assets on the ground. they obviously were involved in a search and rescue mission. that's critically important. as the search and rescue mission begins to wind down, i had emphasized the need for the forest service to get on the streets. you cannot drive anywhere on long island or virtually anywhere on long island without having to detour because there is a tree blocking the way and a tree that has brought power lines down with it. so i'd asked fema to ratchet up their response to help with the removal of downed trees. about an hour later, i must say, i received word from fema that they had asked the national forest service to not only deploy assets but deploy additional assets. there are about 40 forest service personnel on long islan
will be somewhere between $10 billion and $20 billion when it is all tallied up. craig fugate is director of fema. we spoke with him yesterday about what they were expecting. mr. fugate, we appreciate your time this morning. walk me through the areas that have now been affected and where fema's resources are. >> well, we're working the pretty much everything from the carolinas all the way up. the way the storm's going we still have impact. last night after conversations with both governors of new jersey and new york, president obama took the extraordinary action to issue a major disaster declaration based upon the impact that had occurred. what that means is now not only are we providing direct response, but also financial support to state and local governments for response. individuals in these immediate declared areas can start registering for assistance by calling 1-800-621-fema or going to disasterassistance.gov and start the registration process. we know there are people in counties that have not yet been declared. we will be adding on additional counties throughout the day, and probably ove
, peter -- >> in the debate last year when they were talking about fema, john king asked him should we cut fema and put that money into other things. he said, his response, should fema be occur failed to save federal -- curtailed to save federal dollars, romney said absolutely. every time you have and occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can even go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> peter -- >> quick point, that is that you cannot run for president, you cannot talk this way when it is -- it was very clear with george bush, he undervalued fema, to put it under homeland security, put brownie, great job brownie who was a horse guy, political appointee in this, this has been professionalized, pulled up, fema runs well because you have a president that believes in it. >> okay. >> jim? >> are you telling me that barack obama made -- before barack obama, fema sucked is that what you're telling me? >> i'm telling you. >> no, that's what you're saying. >> they cut the budget for
stopped by fema headquarters in washington before heading to new jersey to join governor chris christie to tour the damage caused by sandy. we're going to get to that in a moment. buses and ferries are running and bridges into manhattan are now open. the nation's largest subway system is still water logged. limited subway and rail service begins tomorrow. one sign of normalcy today, the new york stock exchange is open. the opening bell rung by mayor bloomberg. president obama arrived as i said in new jersey in last hour to get a personal look at the devastation that sandy left behind. he's touring the damage zone with one of republican mitt romney's most vocal supporters, new jersey governor chris christie who says this is no time for politics. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do to get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he's been outstanding to deal with on this. >> i'm joined by chief political correspondent candy cro
's the message he keeps conveying. and i should say also praising his fema director who has also gotten some praise from governor christie as well, wolf. >> governor christie has been very fusive in his phrase. as they head toward the microphones let's take a quick, quick break. on the other side we'll hear from the president. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone.

there is no debate that help has arrived. >> reporter: while fema is assessing the damage, people are still without food, the search for bodies under way, and when we talked to 0 senator boxer, she defended the help. the northeast, tonight, the temperature is dropping and people without electricity are slivering. >> 42 years in my home, and i lost it. >> reporter: death toll from sandy is now more than 90, nearly half from the hard hid area of staten island. residents have been screaming for federal assistance. >> please, president obama, please listen to us down here, we are going to die. >> reporter: homeland security secretary janet napolitano toured the destruction this afternoon. >> we want to make sure the right resources are brought here, as quickly as possible. >> reporter: the national guard can now be seen mobilizing supplies, meantime, today in san francisco -- >> romney's record at governor in dealing with disasters has raised doubts. >> reporter: senator boxer pushed for votes, criticizing governor romney. we asked the senator why a delay in relief supplies from fema to staten island.
. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the governors and the impacted states. and again the president trying to stay on top of this situation, balance the storm and response to the storm with his campaign. and the message from the president to his top advisors and top officials is that the government cannot drop the ball. >> what i told the governors and mayors is what i've been saying to my team from the start of this event. and that is we don't have any patience for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape. and we want to make sure that we are figuring out a way to get to yes as opposed to no when it comes to these problems. >> reporter: now later today top officials from the obama administration will be fanning out across the impacted areas in new jersey and also in new york visiting hospitals, visiting with utilities. the idea here, according to th
then you don't know me. >> i think the governor said it well, if fema and the red cross struggled to get into some areas, why would anyone think that people can get out to vote? and the real question is, should our leaders, should our leaders be considering the real possibility of postponing voting in the hardest hit areas? that is a question we'll ask our guests in the next hour on cnn. so right now on the phone with me is a man who has dealt with natural disaster in his city, the mayor of philadelphia and knows all about the politics, and of the northeast, specifically. mayor michael nutter, and joe, the national guard is providing trucks as polling places in new jersey because the buildings were wiped out. officials in other states are getting creative to make sure everyone gets a chance to vote. so we still don't know. so i'm going to get to you and talk to you first about this. what are the states doing before i get to the mayor? what are the states doing to try to make sure that people are getting to the polls? and number one, should we really be considering the possibility of post
a conference call with fema. they have about $3.6 billion left in their disaster contingency fund. that's as of october 26th. they're also saying that president obama when he made that major disaster declaration for new jersey and for new york, he did that verbally. what that meant was they were able to cut through a lot of the red tape and move this process along and get the response going even before the disaster happened. they're also saying that fema is dispatching housing inspectors to go out and take a look at the claims. they want to avoid any kind of massive fraud problems. they say they've been able to bring that down over the past couple years. they'd like to continue to do that. they're going to have boots on the ground verifying some of these housing disaster claims in person. so a lot of response here from the federal government across the board. so far, the folks at fema telling us they think they have enough money to do the job. >> all right. thanks so much, eamon javers. >> and from government losses to trading losses. we know we won't be getting a check from fema, so wh
's a total loss. we have 3,200 fema personnel working this storm in the northeast. and more are on their way. 11,800 national guard already are deployed in the impacted states. and we expect more to come. as was mentioned, 258 red cross shelters have opened. nine federal search and rescue teams have been deployed, supplementing state and local efforts. and they have searched more than 3,300 structures in queens and 870 structures here in staten island. with respect to other assets that are coming in, we all know that power remains the fundamental issue. you should know that president obama has said that all of the federal government is here to help. and that means the department of defense. and the department of defense yesterday was air lifting utility crews with their equipment here to new york, to new jersey and other places impacted by the storm. and more of those air lifts we anticipate to be coming over the coming days. there's an 800 number people can call. 1-800-621-3362. 1-800-621-3362. you can go to disast disasterassistance.gov. or indeed if you go to a disaster recovery center, a
to help states make changes if necessary. so far no one indicated they intend to do that. fema's chief said now that search and rescue is over, power is a top priority. >> we are moving into the mass care part of this disaster and that is going to be driven by the power restoration and getting people power back. >> fema said the government plans to pay 100% of the bill to restore power. >> can't get over those pictures. >>> our weather now, rain last night. >> some sprinkles today. folks in the north bay, it was wet all night for halloween. we got breaks in san jose, but we saw rain, half inch in the heaviest locations. clear outside right now. where the rain showers have gone, moving off in this direction. light scattered showers, a few drop ins san jose this morning. rainfall accumulation. you can see it decreases as you get south towards san jose. good news about the rain, the thing i like, it really does start to help the fire danger. till we are into had winter and the days -- you know, rain helps. good news there. fire danger high. we can see the wind events. 65 in san raff el. 6

, and schools. trucks full of supplies and fema disaster teams are now on the ground in staten island. many people there say that is all that they have got. our brian todd is hearing stories today. watching help arrive. all he's folks. brian, first of all, tell us about the supplies, about the crews and the complaints here. it seems like this is a very difficult situation for folks. >> it is very difficult, suzanne. still very difficult. yesterday when we came here, this place was like a war zone. it looked like a shelled out just bombed out neighborhood. scenes like this behind me are all over the place, and make no mistake, it is still a very devastated scene. you do get a sense that all this morning that this neighborhood is coming back to life. people all over the streets. you have a family digging out there that's trying to dig out some of the remnants of the debris from their home. this church has had just to put everything out on the street that was in its basement. they used this stove, this refrigerator, the chairs here to feed people on sunday. that's all shot because the basement
, things of that nature are all freed up. just got this from the white house, fema is going door-to-door, people might need assistance at the coast guard and taking the lead to identify hazardous floodwaters. not exactly the cleanest water on earth. how do you dispose of that and also fema will support any request from state officials who need help with polling places next week, only a few days from the federal election. the irs is granting taxpayers affected by the hurricane until november 7th if they were supposed to file returns or payments for today. the fdic telling financial institutions if they are having problems with their reporting timeline they can contact them as well. campaign continues tomorrow. mitt romney will be in virginia. president obama back on the campaign trail. green bay, wisconsin, boulder, colorado, las vegas. melissa: thanks for that report. ashley: let's get back to check the markets. the dow up by 35 points and have been in this range for a while. nicole petallides on the nyse. big movers in the wake of sandy. nicole: we will follow sandy at aftermath
from fema, the coast guard, no one. and it's just puzzling. i understand there are worse case scenarios down at the beach, or they're still digging out bodies, but it's just amazing that nothing's been done here. >> reporter: now on the scene red cross, fema as well as the city. they have brought in food, they have brought in water, they have brought in generators, but again, many people here say it's simply not enough, and it simply took too long. as for the power, there are still about 55,000 people on staten island waiting for electricity. a big part of the problem here is that they get their electricity from overhead wires, and con ed has said those type of repairs are going to take longer, possibly as much as one other week. and lastly, many here mourning the deaths of the 19 who died. many people died on staten island than in any other borough in new york city. two of the youngest victims, connor and brandon moore, ages 4 and 2. they were swept away, they were in an suv with their mother, glenda. the suv overrun with water for more than a day there was a frantic search. yesterday
